NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB Roundup Review

Before we move on to taking a closer look at the cards, remember that the NVIDIA GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB graphics card has a board power draw of less than 150W, so just a single 6-pin PCI Express power connector is present on the card. The GeForce 8800 GTS 512 MB graphics cards require a minimum 400W or greater system power supply (with +12 Volt current rating of 26A) for single GPU operation. For running a pair in SLI, NVIDIA suggests a minimum 450 Watt power supply (with +12 Volt current rating of 30A) for dual card operation. Keep this in mind when researching which GeForce 8800 GTS 512MB graphics card to buy as you’ll need a beefy power supply to run them.
